I've only attended on Saturday.
Vendors are open all days except myself. I am open Friday and Sunday, but out on Saturday until 6:45 PM, then open.

Most setup Thursday night and are open all day on Friday. Some will be setting up Friday morning but for sure by noon I would think everyone would be open. And the good deals already snagged from some of them!

Horizon doesn't sell at the show. But Luke's and/or Lasertoyz may have them.

Horizon doesn't sell at events, but normally the Team guys/gals torture us by flying stuff not available to the public.

I'm looking forward in seeing everyone again this year.

Flying Models will have a special surprise for those who enjoy building and flying micros. The November issue of FM will feature a micro version of Joe Beshar's Shrike. Andy Kunz has designed this model to build easy and with AS3X and your favorite Spektrum radio, you'll love the way it flies. Andy and I built the ones you see here over the course of a weekend. Both Andy's and mine will be there during the weekend and we will have a very limited supply of plans available for sale at $5.00.

I only wish I could go, but it's my anniversary (28 years). If I went, you guys would have to come to my funeral the following weekend!

This plane is not due out until December, so I doubt anyone will have them for sale.

However as Azarr says Horizon pilots most likely will torture us by flying them all wekend.

We can dream...the E-Flite still shows the Carbon-Z Cub as due early December and I think you have one coming with your name on it, don't you?

This weekend would be a great time/place to release the AS3Extra. They'd probably sell out of all they could bring. I know I'd take 2.

i agree they would sell out, I know I want one.

Here is my take on the delivery dates Horizon gives....................The first date given is for the first shipment of planes. They give them to dealers first, then back orders, then they stock there shelves. There were so many dealer orders and preorders on the Cub that they did not move the date out, in fact they ran out of planes before orders were filled, therefore the date you see now is in fact the second shipment coming in. Just my 2 cents on how there dates work.

EDIT: added a final pic ready to fly.
Maiden flight went great! Already for this weekend!

It looks like in one of the photo threads someone was maybe selling magnetic assembly jigs for balsa models? Can anyone post some contact information or web site?
